Located at the southern end of Guangdong province, you will undoubtedly find many restaurants dedicated to the distinct flavors of Guangdong cuisine, but you can easily find the other seven cuisines of China all over the city. And with a steadily growing expat population, non-Chinese cuisines are readily available should one’s palate need a taste of something else. Japanese and Korean food can be found within walking distance of campus, while going further into the city will reward you with cuisines from all over the globe. Our campus itself also offers some western comforts with a pizzeria, a sandwich shop, and a Starbucks. As for nightlife, bars can be found all over the city, from upscale venues to curbside barbecue joints serving into the wee hours of the morning. Coco Park and Seaworld are entertainment districts geared towards a more traditional club and bar nightlife that you may be more accustomed to as a foreigner.
